The Best Bulletproof Cars

these are a few of the best bulletproof vehicles you can buy today.
1. MercedesBenz S600 Guard
This is the ultimate in luxury and performance but not the type of performance you might expect: this is the new MercedesBenz S600 Guard.
Its an armoured car with militarygrade protection (thats where the performance comes in) that combines antiterrorist ability with supreme luxury. If youre an Alist celeb, a paranoid politician or just want to up your personal security, then an S600 Guard or one of these other armoured cars could be just the way to increase your defence level.
2. MercedesBenz S600 Guard VR9 protection levels
The S600 Guards protection levels are officially rated at the militaryVR9 grade for both thetransparent and nontransparent areas. This means itll stop bullets from a highpowered, extra armourpiercing rifle travelling at 2,800ft per second thats around 1,910mph.
The VR9 rating also means itll shrug off shrapnel from hand grenades, hence why the cars window glass is this thick.
3. MercedesBenz S600 Guard engine and performance
The engine bay is obviously protected, too, so you dont loose motive force if you need to get away.
Providing the propulsion for you to flee is Mercedes 530hp twinturbo V12. The standard S600 L sprints from 062mph in 4.6 seconds, but we reckon the added weight of all that armour will slightly dull the performance. The blastrepelling mass means top speed is limited to 130mph.
4. MercedesBenz S600 Guard runflat tyres
If your assailant should be so, disrespectful, as to puncture your cars rubber, no problem youll be able toescape from the danger zone for up to 30km [19mph] even with damaged tyres. Reassuring to note.
While you or your chauffeur is doing so, youll be able to relax (as long as youre no longer being fired upon, of course) in all the luxury youd expect from an SClass. Plus there are plenty of autonomous safety features so you dont have a crash and damage your car even further.
5. What is the Audi A8 L Security
The MercedesBenz S600 Guard supersedes this, the Audi A8 L Security, as the latest German tank masquerading as a super saloon on the market.
Just like the Merc and offerings from BMW, as well see the A8 L Luxury meets protection head on, but this big Audi limo is cleverer than it first appears.
6. What armour does the Audi A8 L Security use
The Audi A8 L Security conforms tothe highest level of criteria [for protection] that applies to civilian vehicles. This means it uses class 7 bullet resistant armour tested againstNATO subcaliber ammunition. That sounds serious, and more than a match for the Merc. Even though their protection levels have been measured on different scales, theyre equally tough.
Theres even an intercom system to passengers can communicate with the outside world, putting off any wouldbe assailants.
7. What engine does the Audi A8 L Security use
Adding armour adds weight, so the A8 L Security gets a choice of Audis 435hp 4.0litre turbocharged V8 or its massive 500hp 6.3litre W12 still down on the S600 Guards engine, though.
Despite the extra protection for occupants this long wheelbase A8 (it measures in at a whopping 5.27 metres long) is still rather rapid itll accelerate from 062mph in 7.1 seconds. But its not the only swift, wellprotected luxury vehicle on offer. Click on to read more on the best armoured cars.
8. Cadillac The Beast
If its good enough for the most powerful man in the world, then it is certainly good enough for you. President Obamas choice of ride, fondly known asThe Beast, was specially commissioned from Cadillac.
The sevenseat, eighttonne, Beast has bunkerlike protection (obviously), however, the armour is so thick each door weighs the same as a Boeing 747 cabin door. It also comes complete with a separate oxygen supply and a totally sealed interior to protect against a gas attack. Oh, and several litres of the CommanderinChiefs blood, too.

10. The best bulletproof cars 2
The British Royal Family are well known for their love of cars and this is one of the most special on the fleet.
Its one of two Bentley State Limousines built for the Queen and the coachbuilt bodywork is designed to provide toplevel protection. As well as armoured panels and glass, the cabin can be made airtight to guard against a gas attack, while the tyres are reinforced with kevlar.
